A Little More On Air Source Heat Pumps
Here’s how Air Source Heat Pumps work
Air Source Heat Pumps extract heat from the outside and moves it into the house. The unit will increase the temperature of the heat before releasing it inside. The fluid inside the heat pump makes this possible. You can use this system to both keep the inside of your home warm and heat up water.
How Much Could an Air Source Heat Pump Save Me?
Savings from air source heat pumps are similar to that of ground source heat pumps. Plus, you are looking at about £400 in savings especially when compared to electric resistance heaters.
Comparing Air Source Heat Pumps and Ground Source Heat Pumps
Choosing a heat pump type can be difficult for most people. But you will spend a lot more installing a ground source heat pump than the air source model. But you stand to gain a higher level of energy efficiency.
Underground and water sources provide ground source heat pumps with heat. This makes GSHP more efficient and cost effective. With air source heat pumps, you can expect more energy consumption. This is as a result of higher underground temperatures than in the air. So, ASHPs need more energy to increase air temperatures. That said, ASHP are less costly to install and are still good investments. Air Source Heat Pumps become less efficient during colder months. But they are very easy to install, just like air conditioners. But you will need to excavate the land before you can install a Ground Source Heat Pump. So, you need a suitable subsoil and enough space for the process. Air source heat pumps and ground source heat pumps are both energy efficient, however, they have different installation requirements.
